HackRU is a 24-hour student hackathon at Rutgers University, where students come from all over the country to create. Whether you have an idea that’s going to save the world or you just want to make people laugh, HackRU is a opportunity to build something awesomely real (and, of course, win sweet prizes).
At HackRU, you’ll have access to technologies and mentors from industry leading companies, as well as the phenomenal brains of your fellow hackers to help you create something – anything – to show off during demos, where your creation will be shown to a panel of judges and anyone else who wants to take a look.
Yes, we know prizes are cool (and don’t worry, we have plenty of those) but at HackRU, our focus is on learning and creation. We believe that whether you don’t know a ‘for’ loop from a ‘while’ loop, or you you have a 5-digit Stack Overflow score, there is something in the vast world of programming that you can still learn, and that HackRU is just the place for you to learn it.
